after a few weeks of happy ownership.. I kicked it over and after a “clunk” I get no compression.. kick start returns but doesn’t turn the engine.. from my limited knowledge I am guessing broken shaft and/or kick star quadrant? ...

Helppppppp... after many years away I have returned to the BSA fold with an oily rag B40.... after a few weeks of happy ownership.. I kicked it over and after a “clunk” I get no compression.. kick start returns but doesn’t turn the engine.. from my limited knowledge I am guessing broken shaft and/or kick star quadrant? ... I really want to deal with this myself but..... is this a reasonable job.. should I prepare to replace the whole mechanism whilst apart.. please tell me I don’t have to split the whole engine??? Any thoughts gratefully received, regards Mark, East Herts
